Jersey Jazz Review

by Joe Lang

SASHA’S BLOC has an interesting origin. Russian-born founder Alexander Gershman is a renowned Urologic Surgeon who also happens to be a bass player with a passion for music. He is particularly inspired by the jazz of the 1920s and 1930s. Melancholy is a nine-tune collection of original songs by Sashman and vocalist Carina Cooper, also from Russia, written in the style of the music that Gershman admires. The group is comprised of first-rate Los Angeles area musicians. The songs are fun, and nicely replicate the earlier sounds. This is a different take on swing. It is fresh and appealing. The band has been enjoying success in Southern California, and this disc makes the listener understand why this is the case. (
